The Sight Of Dogs


scares me.
Even the mildest
makes me nervous.
That which one puts
in the pocket, so tiny,
scares me considerably,

Cats, cows, bulls,
elephants to name a few,
do not pose a terror.
Neither I carry a fondness
nor experience panic when I
encounter them,

A kind of phobia
dwells in the mind
as the very word dog
makes me scream not
anyway with delight.
I create a disaster.

Why ? I am unable
to answer. Might
had a traumatic experience
at a young age. Lo! I set eyes
on an Alsatian, I tremble.
I shout, cry, run
create a scene .
